This is one of my favorite beers overall, and probably my favorite by appearance. Poured into a nonic pint glass, giving me a deep midnight black color with a lovely, two finger, tan-colored head that lasted until the beer was about halfway gone. Had quite a prevalent espresso aroma and taste with some very light hints of hazelnut and licorice. Being a 9%, the alcohol was present in the taste, but definitely not overwhelming, giving it a pleasant, warming feel down the throat. Definitely a highly respectable, top-ranking beer.
